Foul language

I thought it was cute until I heard Heidi’s grandfather say “I’ll be damned” over and over like three times in the course of the show. Next thing I know I hear a character call someone else stupid and then a third character says, “Damnit.” Why is that language appropriate for a kids show? I was so upset my 4 year old heard this and then tried out the language. I’m not happy.

This title has:

Too much swearing
age 13+

End of season 1 is inappropriate

In the last few episodes, a mother reveals to her child that she has been lying to him about who his father is because the child was actually the result of an affair she had with married man who later went back to his wife. I was shocked that all this was explained so clearly to young children because it was not needed and totally age inappropriate.
